Editorial Reviews

{WINNER! Best Food Documentary, Sonoma Int'l Film Festival}
{WINNER! Best Documentary, Big Apple Film Festival}

This intimate film about Danny Meyer, one of America's preeminent restaurant owners, opens in the dining room of Eleven Madison Park in December, 2009. Meyer confides to the camera: "After Tabla and Eleven Madison Park opened, I was convinced I'd made one of the worst professional mistakes of my life." Fade to a vast, concrete space, January, 1998. A much younger-looking Meyer, with Tom Colicchio (chef of Gramercy Tavern), enters the site; Meyer gives him a tour of his hopes and dreams.

We follow the restaurateur and his team for a year as they experience gut-wrenching construction delays, miss deadlines, and fire a chef. We visit Tabla's chef Floyd Cardoz in his tiny home kitchen where he creates his now classic watermelon curry. We're there as chef Kerry Heffernan takes over EMP just weeks before opening. Back in the present, Tabla receives a 3 star review in The New York Times, but EMP gets two middling reviews, first from Ruth Reichl and later from Frank Bruni. Danny tells us, "I arrived at the restaurant to find the chef and GM literally crying. I realized it was time for a change." A countrywide search brings in Daniel Humm from San Francisco; the restaurant is transformed. They received first three, then four stars from The Times, one of only six restaurants to be so honored.

Danny Meyer bares all in this portrait. Watching him and his inner circle, we witness first-hand how difficult it is to create a world-class restaurant. THE RESTAURATEUR is nothing like those reality shows. This is real.
